  • Thermodynamic Equilibria and Extremaby Sergey P. Filippov; Alexander N. Gorban; Boris M. Kaganovich

    Springer 2006; US$ 129.00

    Discusses mathematical models that are based on the concepts of classical equilibrium thermodynamics. These are intended for the analysis of possible results of diverse natural and production processes. These allow readers to view the achievable set of partial equilibria with regards to constraints on kinetics, energy and mass exchange. more...

  • Understanding Non-equilibrium Thermodynamicsby David Jou; Jose Casas-Vazquez; Georgy Lebon

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    This book offers a homogeneous presentation of the many faces of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The first part is devoted to a description of the nowadays thermodynamic formalism recognized as the classical theory of non-equilibrium processes. This part of the book may serve as a basis to an introductory course dedicated to first-year graduate students... more...

  • Statistical Mechanics of Nonequilibrium Liquidsby Denis J. Evans; Gary Morriss

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 128.00

    Graduate level book on the analysis of molecular dynamics as applied to equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems. more...

  • Thermodynamics and Fluctuations far from Equilibriumby John Ross; Stephen R. Berry

    Springer 2008; US$ 219.00

    This book deals with the formulation of the thermodynamics of chemical and other systems far from equilibrium, including connections to fluctuations. It contains applications to non-equilibrium stationary states and approaches to such states, systems with multiple stationary states, stability and equi-stability conditions, reaction diffusion systems,... more...

  • Irreversible Phenomena in Ignitions, Combustion and Detonation Wavesby Kunio Terao

    Springer 2007; US$ 269.00

    This book is focused on the latter applications and offers a rather unique viewpoint in comparison with the existing combustion literature. the central argument of the book and the subsequent applications are clearly laid out and discussed, resulting in a very interesting read. The book provides valuable access to numerous experimental and theoretical... more...

  • Four Laws That Drive the Universeby Peter Atkins

    Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 18.99

    The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Peter Atkins' powerful introduction explains what the laws are and how they work.... more...

  • Thermodynamics and Kinetics in Materials Scienceby Boris S. Bokstein; Mikhail I. Mendelev; David J. Srolovitz

    Oxford University Press, UK 2005; US$ 123.99

    This text presents a concise and thorough introduction to the main concepts and practical applications of thermodynamics and kinetics in materials science. It is designed with two types of uses in mind: firstly for one or two semester university course for mid- to - upper level undergraduate or first year graduate students in a materials-science-oriented... more...

  • The Second Law of Lifeby John E.J. Schmitz

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 84.95

    In this compelling, and important book, John Schmitz brings order to the world of chaos that surrounds us. The Second Law of Life refers to the second law of thermodynamics, entropy, which is an omnipresent force that quietly and crucially determines every aspect of our society, culture and daily lives. Unless we come to understand entropy, future... more...
